When Did You Choose to be Straight?



For all the heated debates, ignorance, and passionate arguments, sometimes the simplest questions can have a powerful impact. This is just brilliant as far as I am concerned. I hope this video is viewed millions of times and somehow, in some way makes a few people think.

Wow. that's a powerful video.

A simple question. When did you choose to be straight? I bet the majority of straight people never even THOUGHT about being straight!

It's amazing how a simple question can change the way someone thinks and answers to their biases.

Amazing video. Such a simple question, but seemed hard to answer. It just amazes me that who one chooses to sleep with has become such a debate in this country....maybe we all need to start asking this question point blank whenever we run across a small minded person.

Thanx for posting this...brilliant!

I *LOVE* this. I've always wondered how people could say they choose to be gay. If we don't choose to be straight then how could the reverse be true? I have met several friends at college who are gay and I would never believe that they chose to be that way. It's just who they are. I love them for it.

I just shared this video on facebook - thanks for this! Great video.

Interesting.....very interesting.

I have more than a few gay friends and most of them say the same thing. A couple of them have said "I didn't realize that I was gay until...." and then they say their 20s or 30s. I always thought that was a little strange....didn't make sense to me.

When I was five, I knew I was attracted to girls....and I felt I was supposed to be. It's an interesting question though and a very direct question.

Nice post.
